There are few things in life I love more than mortadella.
Mortadella makes me happy. Scroll over the image below to see just how happy it makes me.
TRAVEL TIP! When ordering the mortadella (or cheese or salami, etc) from a deli you can ask for "un etto" which translates into 100 grams, or just about what you'd want for a snack. Unless you're me, then you'd ask for DUE etto!
Run, do not walk, to Perche' no! for the best gelato of your life. The toasted sesame & honey gelato was out of this world!
